Japan and Fuji XPRO-1

By Massimiliano

Dear Brandon and Steve,

I am Massimiliano, and italian photographer and lover of your blog and I am glad to submit you some picture taken by my last travel to Japan this August. Few weeks before moving to Japan I did a very strange deal, I sold my Leica M9 and took a Fuji XPRO-1 and 35mm f/1.4. Why? I am not sure but I was in search of something different from the greatness but sometimes frustrating Leica M9 limitation (I still use an M2 if I want to use Leica camera).

Over all I love Japan and Tokyo is one of the best place were to shot but I was worried to be unable to catch the beauty of the city with a new gear on my hands. What follow are few shot I have chosen that prove to myself again that the XPRO-1 is a really incredible camera well made and with all the feature necessary to modern photography. Most of the shot are taken in the area that goes between Harajuku and Shibuya few weeks ago. When I shot I try to go as close I can to my subject being sometimes intrusive but able to catch what I think is important because I love Japan and I would like everyone knows this wonderful country.

  1. In Japan, photographing a person (especially young woman) who is unaware that they are being intentionally photographed is strictly illegal and photographer will be arrested. It is called “to-satsu”, which means “covert photography”. They do have much more strict rule about this behavior than the other country.

  2. I certainly like the look of the images, but do people only go on their phones in Japan? I guess it’s a very accurate depiction of todays generation.

  3. Japan is definitely a photogenic country from old style cultural heritage to modern to ‘different’. Congratulations on the new camera, looks like you are having fun.

  4. Thanks to Steve and Brandon to have published my shot and to everyone for their comment on Facebook. I am honored you liked it.
